Review: Maniac Cop (Blu-ray)

28 November 2011 9:12 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

William Lustig’s late 80’s “horror” film, written by Larry Cohen, is now out on DVD/BluRay courtesy of the fine folks at Synapse Films. The blurb on the Blu-ray case claims Maniac Cop is regarded as a classic of the genre, but is it? I would be hard pressed to even call it a horror movie, but more of an action/thriller/revenge film.

The film concerns itself with Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) a young police officer with marital troubles who becomes the prime suspect in his wife’s murder. But it gets worse…people have reported seeing a rogue cop attacking and murdering people, and naturally our hero is put on the top of the suspect list for those crimes as well.

Of course, the real solution can’t be this simple, so it’s up to detective Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins) and Forrest’s associate Theresa Mallory »

DVD Playhouse—April 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Hereafter (Warner Bros.) Clint Eastwood’s spiritual thriller follows a trio of characters whose seemingly disparate paths converge: Matt Damon as a blue collar Joe who tries to fight against his psychic powers that see “the other side,” Cecile de France as a journalist who somehow survives the tsunami that crushed Indonesia, and a London schoolboy (Frankie and George McLaren) who seeks answers after losing his twin brother. Like all of Eastwood’s films, the narrative construction is tight as a drum, with solid work by all involved. That said, “solid” would have to be the operative word to describe the proceedings here, as well as “unremarkable” and “uninvolving” on an emotional level. Perhaps we expect too much when we see Clint’s name on a film these days, but that’s the flip side of being one of the best. Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. »
